Therapy of the month: Reiki (Ray-Key)


Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on or no-touch techniques with the goal of improving the flow of energy in a person. Reiki is Japanese for “universal life energy”.

Reiki is a gentle and safe technique. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring and can promote relaxation and healing.

The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Energy centres (Chakras) as well as other areas of the recipient’s body are worked on.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment.

What do Reiki Treatments feel like? Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time.

Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of wellbeing. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, while others can have an emotional response indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
